(p.148) 14 The Science of Resource Nonuse
The Right of Nonuse

Jan G. Laitos

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that some of the fundamental forces and scientific “laws” of the universe may reveal that natural resources are not just made up of use qualities, but also a parallel, and equal, nonuse dimension. Recognition of resource nonuse, as a symmetrical mirror to resource use, would be consistent with broadly held beliefs about the functioning of nature in other contexts.
